Greetings bookish buddies!  It is the last day of June, so that means it’s time for my monthly wrap-up & haul!

Books Read in June:

I managed to read 5 books this month.  For as much as I have had going on, I am happy with that number.  I am also happy that I read a wide variety of genres this month including a sci-fi, YA fantasy, romance/contemporary, historical fiction, and a YA contemporary.   Surprisingly enough, all the books I read in June received a 4 or more star rating from me. That NEVER happens.  All in all, June was a good reading month.

Here is what I read in the month of June…

Star ratings (3)

» Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

June Book Haul:

I had put myself on a book buying ban for the month of June… I made it about half way through June before I broke down and purchased some books.  Close enough…  Actually, I only purchased 2 books in June, so I would call that a success!

*I know I said I only purchased 2 books this month, but I actually bought this book a few months ago when I bought tickets to the Stephen King’s End of Watch book tour… so I didn’t count it.  You can read about my amazing experience seeing Stephen King here → Book Event: Stephen King’s End of Watch Book Tour

The best part about my June book haul is that 2 of these books are autographed copies!  Eek!  I won an autographed copy of Dollbaby from Laura Lane McNeal herself when she hosted a twitter giveaway!  The second autographed book is The Glittering Court which I won from fellow blogger Deborah @A Chick Who Reads who hosted a giveaway.

Aren’t hey beautiful?!  Ahhh I love autographed copies of books!

How did you fair in June?  Which books did you read?  Did you have a glorious haul?  Please share!  Feel free to link to your own wrap-up and book haul posts 🙂

  1. Wow, you’ve had a great month with loads to look forward to as well!
    I have Station 11 (well, in fact I’ve had it for some time) I keep trying to bump it up the list but I’ve been swamped. Nice to see an encouraging review though.

My June haul is RIDIC! I’m still waiting on 2 books from Bookdepository to arrive so that I can post it but uhhhh I’m going on a book buying ban for July at least 🙈😂🙈😂

    1. I actually enjoyed it, which was a pleasant surprise! I’m currently working on my review. Basically I only read this book because Will Patton was the narrator for the audiobook and he is my favorite narrator! I think the synopsis is misleading and not an accurate depiction at all. The plot is actually much more interesting than I thought it would be. I also enjoyed the motley group of characters 😊

    1. It’s very rare for me to give lower than 3 stars HOWEVER I research the books I choose very wisely lol I don’t have time for bad books in my life 😜. I let you all weed out the duds for me 😊


  4. Gosh, you were busy! I read Station Eleven last year and it was one of my favourite reads of 2015. Sucha strange and oddly beautiful story, unlike any other post-apocalyptic fic. I’ve read before.
